Roots, Rock, Arapiles

Our Friday Night Video this week takes us to Arapiles, Australia. The film explores the origins of rock climbing in the area, in a fun and adventurous story that features some of the pioneers that discovered the area in the 1960s.?

So enjoyed this. If we swap Arapiles for Ireland, this was pretty much my childhood.

But hey, they got Arapiles!  Lucky, lucky guys. Good on 'em. Be lucky.

I don't think you can call it "the" Arapiles. Arapiles, Mt Arapiles, the Raps, The Mount. Sorry to be a bit pernickety. Haven't had time to watch it yet, but look forward to it. I imagine Keith "Noddy" Lockwood will figure - he stayed with us last summer and between the rain drops we did Little Chamonix together. Great character.

You can, if you want to annoy people. Some people used to say it, the 'the', not sure why, then it became a thing, people saying it was wrong. Then it became a thing to say it deliberately just for a joke and to wind people up.

It's become a bit of an in-joke, like 'the peaks district' and arguing over the grade of Three Pebble Slab.
